Environmental Justice in a Multispecies World Writing Workshop with Rosemary-Claire Collard

March 8, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 3:30 pm

Geographer Rosemary Collard will be visiting UW-Madison on Friday, March 8th to participate in a writing workshop hosted by the Environmental Justice in a Multispecies World research group.

Rosemary Collard is an Assistant Professor of Geography at Simon Fraser University. Her research draws on multispecies fieldwork, feminist thought, and critical theory to examine the relationship between capitalism and biological life and the role this relationship plays in extinction and biodiversity loss. Find out more about her work and publications here: https://www.sfu.ca/geography/people/profiles/rosemary-claire-collard.html

The Environmental Justice in a Multispecies World research group is supported by funding from the Holtz Center for Science & Technology Studies, the Center for the Humanities Borghesi-Mellon Workshop, and the Center for Culture, History, and Environment (CHE). We meet regularly to discuss readings and works-in-progress.
